Classic Rock 102 9

Classic Rock 102 9

The Valleys only original Classic Rock Station, With new music from classic artists and a showcase for local rock bands.

Mark BoneFriday, November 17, 2017

The Eagles and Jimmy Buffett are reportedly plotting a new 2018 tour together. The news comes courtesy of longtime Eagles manager Irving Azoff, who spoke with Best Classic Bands about upcoming plans for the group. He predicted a stadium run for the two acts. Cautioning that they were "just talking about a handful" of shows between Buffett and the Eagles, one of which would serve as a "celebration" of both artists at Denver's Coors Field.

The widow of Steely Dan's Walter Becker has revealed to Rolling Stone that her husband died following a battle with an "extremely aggressive form of esophageal cancer." "Walter died in the course of being treated for an extremely aggressive form of esophageal cancer," Delia wrote in a letter. "The cancer was detected during one of his annual medical checkups and its presence came as a grim surprise to Walter, his doctors and to me. She also stated that Becker died peacefully in their New York City home, surrounded by his family and his music. He was cremated without a memorial or funeral, which is what he wanted according to her.
Toto has released "Alone," a new song taken off of the band's new best-of compilation, 40 Trips Around The Sun. "Alone" is a brand new track that Steve Lukather calls "a great representation of where we are at today he says. "We wrote everything, recorded everything, played everything together. ('Alone') is a real up, positive thing even though the song is called 'Alone'; It's about growing old and stuff like that, but it's really energetic and, I think, an interesting take on it." 40 Trips Around The Sun will be released on February 9.

          Wednesday, November 15, 2017
          Alice Cooper has once again connected with his original bandmates, this time in Leeds, U.K. Bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce, and drummer Neal Smith all joined Cooper on November 11 at First Direct Arena. The former members connected earlier this year for a five-song set in Nashville. Cooper said at the time: "When the original band broke up in 1975, there was no bad blood, there were no lawsuits - we had just burned out the creative process. We had gone to high school together and had recorded something like five platinum albums in a row. We were never out of sight of each other for ten years.
          Iron Maiden have confirmed plans for a European tour. The run will come in support of their forthcoming new release The Book of Souls and will kick off in Tallinn, Estonia on May 26. It will take them throughout Europe, wrapping at the O2 Arena in London on August 10. Guitarist Ron Smallwood spoke on the tour, noting: "As our fans know, we've been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce [Dickinson, vocals] and Adrian [Smith, guitar] rejoined MAIDEN at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with 'History/Hits' tours.
          Brian May has sounded off after his Instagram account was disabled earlier this week. The rock legend was targeted after a photographer reported the account. May allegedly failed to credit the photographer for a photo posted to his account and was highly critical of photog in posts on other social media. "Well this is what I woke up to," he wrote. "How RUDE! I'm usually very careful to credit anyone whose photos I post - but in this case, at the end of the day, I must have forgotten,"

              A new biography of Stevie Nicks alleges that she faced abuse at the hands of Lindsey Buckingham. The book, titled Gold Dust Woman, recounts an incident that occurred during the photo shoot for the couple's debut album. Author Stephen Davis says their record label requested that Nicks "sex up" her image and Buckingham went ballistic when she refused. "Don't be a f*****g child," the then-24-year-old guitarist says, according to Nicks. "This is art!" The book also alleges that after they moved to Los Angeles together, Nicks began working cleaning homes and waiting tables to cover their rent while Buckingham would sit at home all day smoking hash with his friends: "I'd come in every day and have to step over these bodies,"

              U2 paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack that occurred last May during a performance in London earlier this week. The band ripped through a set jam-packed with their hits during the show and handed out signs for fans to hold up reading "Give Peace a Chance" and "Resistance." Before playing the song "Get Out of Your Own Way," Bono explained that fans have the power to stand in the face of oppression, noting: "Protesting, in the end, works. It gets things done, slowly and surely.

              A Bob Dylan artifact has fetched a big return at an auction over the weekend. A guitar owned by the rock icon and Nobel Prize laureate was sold for just under $400,000. The auction took place on Saturday and was run by Heritage Auctions in Dallas, according to Billboard. Heritage said a buyer, who has asked to remain anonymous, had a winning bid of $396,500. The guitar is a 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic. Heritage says Dylan played the instrument for his appearance at George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in 1971.

                Mark BoneSometimes a company launches a new product that complements their business SO well, you can't believe it took them this long to figure it out.  This is one of those cases.
                 
                 
                Stove Top stuffing just launched a brand new product called Thanksgiving Dinner Pants.  They've got a big expandable waistband and, basically, they look like maternity pants.  But they're not for people who are pregnant, just gorging.
                 
                 
                They're selling them at ThanksgivingDinnerPants.com for $20 with free shipping.  You should grab some quick before they sell out.

                  Mark BoneI'm not sure who still uses pay phones, but apparently the answer is "lots of people."  Because those things are GOLDMINES.
                   
                  According to Vice.com, just two years ago, pay phones across the country made a total of $286 MILLION.
                   
                  And they estimate that every phone pulls in around $236 per year, which means they each get at least a few calls every day.  Who knew??

                  This means that I will have to be on the lookout for payphones and give them a call from time to time to chat!

                        Robert Plant will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association UK, their highest honor for a U.K. artist, which is awarded for outstanding contribution to the Americana genre over the span of a career. "We are so excited to announce that Robert Plant will be accepting our Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018. The award is our highest honour and it couldn't be going to a more deserving recipient," CEO of the Americana Music Association UK, Stevie Freeman says.

                        A new documentary about Eric Clapton is set to hit cinemas later this month. The doc, titled Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars, was directed by Lili Fini Zanuck. It debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. "The breadth of Eric Clapton's career - John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos - is impossible to be true and yet Lili Fini Zanuck's brilliant film makes it clear that it is," Richard Abramowitz, president of Abramorama, said Wednesday in a statement. "We're very proud to start the holiday season with this gift to lovers of great music."

                        Lou Gramm says that fans can expect more shows featuring the original members of Foreigner next year. "I've been doing weekends for the last few years," he said in a brand new interview with Rockbandreviews.com. "That's kind of nice. You leave Thursday, you play Friday, Saturday [and] you come home Sunday. So I think we're gonna be doing more of those, and then there's gonna be the Foreigner shows. I don't know how many of those we're gonna do into what month. I suppose it depends on the reception of the audience. So I think everything is kind of poised for a fun and interesting summer [of 2018], and let's see what happens."

                          This guy REALLY wants to save $350 on a TV, and maybe also get a Blu-Ray of "Moana" for $8.
                           
                          There's a guy who's already camping out in front of a Best Buy in Laredo, Texas for Black Friday.  And apparently he put his tent down last Tuesday, so as far as we know, he was the first person in the country to start lining up.
                           
                           When a news reporter went to interview him, he didn't want to be on camera or give his name . . . maybe he's self-aware enough to know what he's doing is stupid?  He also didn't say what he's hoping to buy.

                              Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will contribute to a brand new Dr. Demento box set, Dr. Demento Covered In Punk, which celebrates the work of the legendary radio personality and novelty song maestro. The Misfits, William Shatner, and "Weird Al" Yankovic will also contribute. Dr. Demento Covered In Punk features over 30 covers of songs that originally aired on the Dr. Demento radio show.
                              The Rolling Stones have announced that they could be bringing their act to some to the bigger venues in the UK in 2018. Last year, the Stones announced that their 2018 European 'No Filter' Tour would not be visiting the UK this year, but were hoping to reveal dates for 2018, citing a "lack of available venues because of sporting fixtures." Though it sounds bleak, Mick Jagger has offered a bit of hope to all of his UK fans.
                              Elton John celebrated the 25th Anniversary of his AIDS Foundation on November 7. The event was held at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City and was hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Aretha Franklin performed a 9-song set at the event and additional performances were delivered by Heather Headley and violinist Joshua Bell. Guests in attendance included President Bill Clinton, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Billy Joel and Sting among others. John was also honored with Harvard's Humanitarian award earlier this week. He accepted the honor in a reception at the prestigious university and shared his vision for a better humanity in his acceptance speech.

                                      Mark BoneThis explains a lot...
                                      This probably won't make swatting flies any easier.  But it might be less frustrating once you know why it's so difficult . . .
                                       
                                      It's really hard to hit a fly with a fly swatter because they're basically seeing everything in SLOW MOTION.
                                       Humans and other animals don't really see things as one continuous video.  Our brains are constantly piecing together images so everything LOOKS like it's continuous.
                                       
                                      How fast it happens is called "flicker fusion rate."  For humans, it's about 60 times a second.  Kind of like a video camera that shoots 60 frames per second.  But not all animals have the same flicker fusion rate.
                                       
                                      For turtles, it only happens about 15 times a second.  So things look like they're moving a lot faster for them than for us.
                                       
                                      For houseflies, it's around 250 times a second.  Which means they're seeing the world move four times SLOWER than us.  So if they see a fly swatter coming their way, they can move before it hits them.
                                       
                                      We're just smarter than flies, so sometimes we catch them by surprise. Maybe Brundlefly was onto something.

                                              You'd upload all of the nude pictures on your phone to Facebook.  Those would be analyzed, and turned into something like a digital fingerprint.  Then Facebook swears they'd delete the photos themselves.

                                              But they still have that "fingerprint."  So if someone else tries to upload one of those nude photos, Facebook will recognize it and prevent the person from sharing it.
                                               
                                               Right now they're testing out this new system with a small group of people in Australia.  There's no word on when it might go worldwide.

                                                  A little over a month ago, Twitter gave some users the chance to use 280 characters in their tweets instead of the normal 140.  And I guess they liked how the test went, because yesterday, they rolled out that longer limit to EVERYONE.
                                                   
                                                  Just THINK of how many more racial slurs or spam keywords people can fit into their tweets now.  Thanks, Twitter!
